Here’s a couple pics of my DC. Figured I’d check out the new site and see how it goes posting pics. Nice original low miles truck with plenty of North East goodness to keep me busy. The plan was to go through the Brakes (done) wheels tires (done) and tackle the lower center section rust issues. Hats and inner rockers (done) B,C&D pillars (done). Outer rocks being worked on. I’m not even sure if I had a thread on this truck, anyway I work on this till something shinny distracts me and I forget it for months at a time lol.66beaterParticipantSeptember 8, 2017 at 2:16 pmPost count: 64
Looks nice! Throw a gas tank and engine in there! Work on it as you roll in it!

Awesome!!! You gonna paint it??!!Glenn aParticipantSeptember 25, 2017 at 2:57 pmPost count: 12
Nah, don’t want to paint it. I’ve been messing around trying to strip the green off. It came off the bed real nice, But the rest of the truck was prepped and primed better so it’s being a bitch. Down the line I think I’ll just have some 2k tinted match and cover any bare metal. IDK.
My shop was jammed up for a while (to many VWs is a good/and bad). I had no room to work and couldn’t get excited about anything. I bit the bullet and rented a spot to store some shit. Now I got some elbow room to get my head back in this pig.
Some paint removal work.
Finally some current work. Got this lower wheelwell burned in last night.John JonesKeymasterSeptember 25, 2017 at 6:31 pmPost count: 5844

Paint removal looks good. What u useingGlenn aParticipantSeptember 25, 2017 at 7:28 pmPost count: 12
I used easy off oven cleaner followed by lacquer thinner. It doesn’t seem to be working as good on the cab.68tintopParticipantSeptember 25, 2017 at 7:33 pmPost count: 677
That’s what I was useing the oven cleaner. The kanucks said use citra strip and those boys are some strippers and pretty good at it from the looks. I haven’t tried citra yet but I will soon. Love me some double cabJdawgParticipantSeptember 25, 2017 at 7:54 pmPost count: 422
I dig the wheel and tire combo..looks good.Glenn aParticipantSeptember 26, 2017 at 9:57 amPost count: 12
Those tires are Achilles Tires Desert Hawk. Got them from Simpletire.com. Id like to put a set of Nates lifted spindles on here at some point. Or maybe just put some adjusters in.Glenn aParticipantSeptember 28, 2017 at 8:03 pmPost count: 12
Another productive night on the DC. Next I’ll have to make inside part of both wheelwells and fix the mess between them where the floor meets behind the gas tank.tlambertParticipantSeptember 29, 2017 at 12:20 amPost count: 265Glenn aParticipantOctober 5, 2017 at 8:17 amPost count: 12
I made up some pieces for the bottom of the wheelwell. I didn’t realize till I took a closer look that there is kind of a weird joint on the leading edge of that area. So I just copied what I saw there. Plus they sit on top of the floor so I’ll weld them in after the floor is welded in place.
I’m not sure if I should have the back half of this pig sandblasted whiles it is this far apart or just powerwash it and treat it with Ospho and some epoxy and call it a day.John JonesKeymasterOctober 15, 2017 at 8:49 amPost count: 5844
You do awesome metal finishing!!!! 😉
wash it, epoxy it, call it a day! 😉 😉 Blasting will lead to more work and money with no increase in enjoyment.. 😉JbParticipantOctober 16, 2017 at 12:14 pmPost count: 544
Awesome! I’d like to build a DC one day! Such a useable vw!?
